Can anyone comment as to the FA's intent on the direct line (lower traverse) or the large pockets up left towards the arete and a high traverse?

Absolutely classic! Awesome crux sequence on small, positive holds on a vertical face.

I can't comment on the FA's intent but I blew the onsight by trying the low rightward traverse. I found it very difficult to get high enough from the lower huecos to latch onto the high crimps. Sent the route next go using the higher traverse (shown in the photo of the route on this page). Seemed 12a using the higher traverse. Fun-- almost as fun as Lovely Arete.

Yes, 4 bolts and anchors.

I think the FA is Mike Simpson or Eric Ulner....all these route should be in the Simpson guide.

Per the Ulner guide, the FA belongs to Stason Foster, 1989.

RE: the traverse, everyone I have seen uses the higher traverse, first moving left to the pocket and then rightward along the crimp line. Took me a long time to figure out the big move after the third clip. Had to find the secret foot beta for short people (5'3'').
